IDW has released this image
which has the caption that simply states, "A Storm is Coming July 2006"
. It could be the third comic that Simon Furman mentioned in this
story by Darth Bombshell. It could also be a number of other things. At this time it is not clear what this means. The News Crew will do their best to keep everyone up to date.

atomsplitter, Transformers Collectors Club Members Site and Professor Coldheart of TFW2005
Hasbro has unveiled the bonus item they promised to release with Primus at the Transformers Collectors Club Members Site
. Here is a quote from the site:
"The latest news on Cybertron Primus is that the figure will be available this summer to all stores. You will be able to change him from robot-mode to battle station-mode to planet-mode, and unlock cool features with the Cyber Planet Key. In addition, the INITIAL quantities released in the US will include a bonus 3-inch battle-damaged Unicron head!"
For those of you who are not members of the club here is a description of the battle-damaged Unicron head provided by Professor Coldheart of TFW2005
The head looks like the orange Armada Unicron with the right half of the face blown off to reveal a skelatal face. The horns on his head are busted up and he has wires, almost tentacle-like, coming from the neck area that will act as a base.
Out of respect for the wishes of Members only section of the Transformers Collectors Club we will not post images up until they are widely availiable. Please do not post these images of links to these images. If we get the ok from the club to post such images then we will post them.

Below is a nice batch of new itesm from Sideshow spanning many licenses, from Star Wars to Chucky!
LORD OF THE RINGS - 12" LEGOLAS: The second figure in Sideshow's new 12" lineup will be Legolas Greenleaf.

STAR WARS 'VSD' VINYL SUPER DEFORMED: Produced by Medicom in Japan, Sideshow is distributing these in the USA, very fun figures priced at $54.99 each. Darth Vader and Stormtrooper each have oversized heads, feet, and hands - definitely a different look for them, but the figures are attractive and balanced even with the oversized appendages. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=83&category=2033
CHUCKY: There has been a Chucky drought for quite a while, but he's finally back! Sideshow brings us the standard version of Chucky for $45.99 - he stands 15" tall and brandishes a carving knife. We also have the Bride of Chucky version listed at $45.99 - this is basically the same figure other than the horrible gaping wounds on his face. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/menu.aspx?menu=719
SAW - 30" JIGSAW PUZZLE: A creepy release based on the recent horror
movies - this puppet is priced at $209.99 - take a look: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=MED10031&mode=retail

= Venom http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=MED10033&mode=retail
REIGN OF FIRE - DRAGON MAQUETTE: Even if you didn't love the movie, this Dragon Maquette is worth a close look. The dragon is captured in an open-mouthed roar so tons of teeth are showing and everything is highly detailed, this item is fairly expensive at $329.99, but great for any big dragon fans. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=SSC10314&mode=retail
MARVEL ARCHIVE - CAPTAIN AMERICA WEAPONS SET: This will hopefully be the first of many weapons sets for all the Marvel heroes. We have this item priced at $74.99 - a very cool display of Captain America's shield and helmet along with a pedistal base. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=SSC10318&mode=retail
TERMINATOR 1:2 SCALE T800 ENDOSKELETON: If the 1:1 scale Endoskeleton from Sideshow is a bit out of the price range, here is a half sized

about 3 feet tall and features glowing red eyes - up for preorder now at $1999.99. We also have the 1:4 scale verison in stock for $499.99 http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=SSC10320&mode=retail
